Seattle is home to more than 400 city parks, which encompass 10.2 percent of its land area. There are many to choose from, yet the most popular is perhaps Discovery Park which has 534 acres located on the shores of Puget Sound, it contains 11.81 miles of walking trails, and it is city?s largest public park. Bears and cougars have been sighted in this rugged terrain and on clear days you will be fortunate enough to have stunning views of Mt Rainier, a 14,411-foot glacier-encrusted volcano. This park offers urban dwellers a rich natural area to escape the city, but it is actually within city limits.
